Top 10 Must Have Painting Tools

I’ve been painting for years, and I have found painting tools that I cannot live without! It is time that I shared my favorite painting tools with you all so your next painting project can be easier!

1. Handy Paint Tray

The Handy Paint Tray has solved so many of my painting frustrations! It has a magnet to hold your paintbrush while you are rolling – which is a huge game changer! It also has removable liners for easy cleanup, and handles on each end for easy transport to different rooms and areas of the house! I use this for all my projects. I know you’ll love it too!

2. Sturdy Step Ladder

One thing I’ve learned over the years is that you shouldn’t use chairs in place of a sturdy step ladder! I had one incident while painting where I used a folding chair to avoid grabbing my ladder from the garage, and let’s just say that the score was Chair-1 Me-0. I’ve learned my lesson to just take the time to grab the step ladder! I love this one because it has a ledge for supplies which comes in handy!

3. Paintbrushes

A couple years ago I discovered Zibra paintbrushes and have been using them ever since! They not only hold a ton of paint, have a comfortable wood handle, but also don’t shed bristles. I will forever be using Zibra!

I first found this All-In-one wall repair on Instagram, and it will forever be in my supply kit! Not only is it primed, but the container has a putty knife on the end, and a bit of sandpaper to sand it down before painting! It’s so handy to have this just in case you spot a small hole as you’re about to start painting!

5. Paintbrush cleaning tool

I don’t know what took me so long to buy this paintbrush cleaning tool! It saves me so much time when cleaning brushes, and it also has a side for scraping paint from a paint roller! This is always in my toolkit!

6. Handy Paint Pail

Ever since I started using the Handy Paint Pail a few years ago, I was immediately obsessed with it! It helps save your hands from cramping up while holding the paint, and keeps it close while you’re working. This pail also has a magnet and removable liners which is super helpful!

7. Paint Roller Extender

If you’re painting walls, you need a paint roller extender! Not only will it help you reach high up on the walls, it helps your hands and arms not tire so easily. It’s a win-win, so grab one for yourself!

8. Foam Rollers

If you’re painting smooth surfaces, like a door or cabinets, you will need foam roller covers. They are the best for leaving a nice smooth finish! This kit contains the roller, roller covers, and a small tray!

9. Painter’s Tape

Painter’s tape is important for protecting surfaces that you don’t want painted! There is also some awesome pre-taped painter’s plastic that is helpful to protect walls and floors!

10. Paint Shield

When painting baseboards, it can be tricky not to get paint on the floor. This paint shield comes in handy when trying to paint the bottom of baseboards, so that you can skip tape in some cases!
